Dear colleagues 

Please find the 1st announcement of the 2nd Paris International School on 
Advanced Computational Materials Science (PISACMS), which will be held from *Mon 
Aug 29th to Sun Sept 4th, 2016*, in the *Jussieu campus * of the Université 
Pierre et Marie Curie, in the heart of the Latin Quarter of central Paris. 

The aim of this school is to form young generations of researchers (PhD 
students, postdocs, young assistant professors) to atomic, molecular and 
condensed phase computational methods, from theory to the most advanced 
approaches, going from the very microscopic to the macroscopic: Density 
Functional Theory, classical Monte-Carlo and molecular dynamics, ab initio 
molecular dynamics, metadynamics, linear response, lattice-Boltzmann 
methods, Quantum Monte-Carlo, Path-Integral. 
Our ambition is to make students aware of the fundamental principles of 
each methods, and then able to choose the most adapted one(s) for a given 
scientific problem. The broad panel of approaches we propose, both via 
theory lessons and computer lab "projects", is unique. 

This school benefits both from the exceptional central Paris environment, 
and from the local concentration of young and confirmed experts-teachers in 
each specific theme of the school, including Michele Casula, Guillaume 
Ferlat, Fabio Finocchi, Marie Jardat, Maximilien Levesque, Virginie Marry, 
Fabio Pietrucci, Benjamin Rotenberg, A. Marco Saitta, Mathieu Salanne, Ari 
Seitsonen, Rodolphe Vuilleumier.
